SMC Seminar:

Employment Law Made Simple:

A Guide for Executives & Non-HR Managers


Most programs inundate you with an alphabet soup of confusing laws and complicated descriptions. This “plain talk” program takes a different approach by discussing the central theme behind most employment law claims and issues. It will explain the legal trap and how to avoid it. This program delivers a common sense way for you to accomplish your organization’s goals while preventing and prevailing in employment law claims.

You’ll learn:

  • The common theme and central approach behind most employment laws, explained in common sense.
  • How discrimination can be implied.
  • Areas of employment law where common sense does not apply.
  • How to make more effective use of your HR staff.
